First and foremost, if the title threw you, this is obviously not a post that is going to contain much about video games, so if you are only interested in that, don't waste your time reading this.
***Rant first, Who I am, later.***
I am merely taking some of the heed and suggestion that I have been offered in ways that are malicious, or not, and am going to post a blog based on who I am. If it appears I am ranting, I am, and if it invokes an emotional response than do what the emo kids do, and cut yourself, keep your disenfranchising thoughts to yourself, they will either be mocked or ignored.
The most important thing to note is that I am definitely a "do something first, ask questions later" kind of guy. I have already been chasticised for this in my previous blogs. I posted a few quick blogs on my first day here, one with a picture of myself, one with my top 10 favorite hard RPG battles, one with a spoof on a movie that I thought was funny, and one with a pretty off the wall bad idea for a video game.
I have read the rules and regulations, and found out a few more of the "unposted" ones from other members on here. I was listening to all of the thoughts and comments I had recieved, and if it is found later that I am not obliging someone because they "deserve" it for being a member of this site longer than I, than I must say I simply couldn't care less. I am more concerned with myself, my hobbies, and my actions, than I am of those around me. If you think your going to faze me with useless commentary that is negative in a fruitless attempt to get me to change you are wrong. Any change that happens on my part is by choice, not initiated by anyone else. Also if you find a typo, and want to razz me over it, then use that talent and go be an editor somewhere it matters. Your talents of finding grammatical errors are only going to be useful to you if you are an english teacher or the aforementioned. Keep it to yourself. I write for enjoyment, not because I have any thoughts of publishing my blogs, and making it big. Delusional thoughts such as those are meant for people with their head in the clouds, unless they are actually pursuing it through the proper channels, my guess is that this is not one of them, unless they are using it to showcase noteworthy articles that have already been accredited.
I know this is me ranting a little bit about the way I have been treated thus far, but these rants are simply my way of telling the people that already dislike me, to buzz off. Find something else to do, I mean seriously, waxing religious regarding a gaming website, is a bit disorienting. If you have that much time, please get a life, I beg of you, being connected to this website 24/7 is not "cool," and is most likely interfering with your life. Go do charity, pick up a second job, whatever, your not my social case, and I refuse to deal with you.
Now I will get to a more tranquil place and go ahead and do that I came here to do, and that is to divulge some information about myself. This is merely my attempt to seperate the people that are going to like me from the ones that are not. I could definitely use some friends to talk about video games with, as my current lifestyle is not allowing that right now.
So I guess I will jump into that first.
I work 44 hours a week as a Store manger of a shoe store. I am gay, and with regard to the picture I posted that is not my girlfriend. Gay bashing is for weak minded fools, and if you wish to do that, I will make certain that those comments are directed to someone capable of interfering with your ability to post, per the "rules and regulations" I was told to read multiple times.
Anyways. I am 23 years old, and I live in Davison, Michigan. I am a very strong minded, athletic person. I have a high amount of energy, and the way I choose to spend it is by working hard, working out 2 - 3 times a week for a period of 1-3 hours per visit to the gym, and I have a dog "Kiba" (who is a girl) and pretty much the only girl for me. She likes to run, and is most likely the cutest dog you will ever see
I am currently dating a wonderful guy who practically lives with me. His name is Josh, and he is 20 years old. I have known him for 6 months, and have been dating him for 2. In a few months when my lease expires I am going to be moving in with him. I am hoping to snag a cheap house since the economy sucks so bad right now.
Anyways, I am originally from Chicago, and as I was a Traveling Training Manager for my company I have worked all across the Midwest. I worked in Cincinnati and Cleveland Ohio, I worked in Aurora, Naperville, Schaumburg, Chicago, and a few other places in Illinois, and I worked in Pleasant Prairie WIsconsin, and also Rochester Hills, and Birch Run Michigan.
I love to travel, and I am the most fleighty person you will ever meet. I change my mind like I change T-Shirts, some of my opinions are set in store, and a lot of other ones are up in the air. I do not chastise people for being however they want to be, even if I find it distasteful. To each his own. It may seem as though I am being a bit "contra"dictory if you read my rant. But those who know me know, and this is the first step, so don't think you have all the answers quite yet. Idiosyncratic things such as "rape" will be ignored, oh did I mention I am random, and slightly bitter? lol
Which I am sure will now be my staple response to those that annoy me, as it seems to be the fitting one for "unsavory" blogs
Anyways, the most important thing to note is that my friends are everything to me. I also find that one can divulge a lot about a person based on who their friends are.
My best friends most of which I have known pretty much forever are extremely varied.
Mark Murray, He used to be in the Army, and fought for this country in the Iraq war, and his efforts should be applauded. He is my best video game buddy, but as I can't sit still and live in the same place for long periods of time because I love to meet new people and travel, I only get to see him about once a year. He is married and has one kid. He is just as into RPG's as me, and we used to stay up late in 8th grade and beat final fantasy 7 over and over again, we also constructed multitudes of lego armies. And had pretend RPG style fights with them.
Jenna Crismon. She is a school teacher, and one of the few girls I get along with. I don't like overly emotional people, I think its a weakness to constantly be annoyed / perplexed / overly happy and optimistic about something all the time. LIFE IS NOT THAT COMPLICATED, and neither is she. She is just as bitter and sarcastic as I am, and is with her long time boyfriend Mario who she is absolutely in love with. She is my role model with regards to her continuing education, as I am unable to sit still for long periods of time, unless it is to play video games or read dorky vampire love novels like Twilight. I wish I had finished College, but I still have no idea what I want to do. Maybe someday I will write a book, if I can keep myself in a chair for that long.
Kelly Hermanson. He is my best gay friend, we were on and off for the longest time. But now are just friends. He is my thinking friend, he is the one who questions me on everything I do, which makes me question myself, he keeps me real, and focused, and down to earth, even though I want to move to a new state every other weekend, and quit jobs for no apparant reason. He is into games too, just computer games, like wow, and such i play mine on the console, except my roms obviously
Anyways, I am a classic RPG lover, and that is what I do, when I am not spending time with my friends, or boyfriend, or traveling, or working out, or just plain working. I don't play as much as I used to, its depressing but it took me until a few days ago to beat Persona 4, and I had been playing it an hour here and there since I bought it on the day it came out.
Because I am saving up for a house, and just bought a new car VW 08 Rabbit, (im gay what did you expect)
I have been putting off buying a next gen system, because I feel that if I don't buy a new flatscreen to go along with it, then its not really next gen, so when I get my tax return, (which I still havent done, I always put that off to the last minute as I am a procrastinator) that is what I will do.
Anyways, I figure this covers most of the bases. If you are curious what kind of games I like, just look at my synopsis on my blog header, it has most of my collection listed there, along with a list of games I want to buy that I don't yet have.
If you have any productive questions (which my definiton means, questions without wasteful hostility) I will answer them as soon as I can. I plan to make this part of my routine of websites that I check daily, and hope I will have a different form of welcome than the one I had recieved in my other blogs.
I welcome opinions, and criticism of any kind, except for those outlined in ways I have already described.
Hope I make a few friends, and waste a little bit of time (oh yeah I only sleep like 4-6 hours max)
Ask me questions, and tell me stories.
Have a great night
